Great Britain diver Tom Daley is not only a Olympic gold medalist -- he's a master at stitching and crochet. Daley was spotted in the stands knitting a week after he won a gold medal in the men's 10-meter platform to cheer on and support his fellow Olympians at the women's 3-meter springboard diving final Sunday at the Tokyo Games.
"The one thing that has kept me sane throughout this whole process is my love for knitting and crochet and all things stitching," Daley said in a video post on his knitting and crochet account.

Daley has also knitted a pouch for his gold medal.
"But not only that, this morning I made a little cozy for my medal to stop it from getting scratched," he said in the video post. "So here it is. It slots in like this and then I've got Union Jack on the side, and Japanese flag on the other. And it all tucks in nicely to have a little pouch for me to carry around my medal without it getting scratched."
The gold medalist created an Instagram account dedicated to his passion for knitting titled "Made With Love By Tom Daley."
